I note with interest that today's TIMES has much in it for the reader of
Obituaries to marvel over:
I was particularly drawn to the size and shape of the paper and its content
grabbed my attention: Directors and BBC men come and go and I note the inclusion of
the death of the filmmaker and recorder of the Bloody Sunday Events of
1972 and thereabouts! I hasten to add that his obituary is side by side
with equally famous people: what about the lady who was a dancer and a teacher: there is a wonderfully glamourous photo of this woman taken obviously when she was very young.
WIll any of us be remembered other than the highlights of our careers! That moment in time when our country won at Sport: Football or Rugby or the much coveted prize of NOBEL for Literature in 2005 which went to the writer Harold Pinter:
The TImes, has a glossy section today all about buying properties, but the cost in England is so prohibitive that most of us are seeking property in Europe! After all we are all fully paid up members of the EU!
The horror of the assassination attempt on the late great Polish Pope
John Paul 11 is featured: and his /assassinator/ is now free from his Italian gaol after a 25 year sentence has been served by this Turkish man! The Pope forgave him this murder attempt and there is a truly evocative recollection of the Pope and the Prisoner in today's Times: apparently this man of Turkish nationality is now free: he has returned to Turkey where he is guilty of other crimes: it is believed that his sentence served over 25 years in Italy should suffice and that he will now be free! The Turkish Authorities are in revolt against his now new freedom!
Jostling for position is the other side of writing in The TImes which I refer to as
Celebrities in the News: The new Leadership Contest now in full swing following on from the resignation of Charles Kennedy features prominently! There is never a dull moment in British Politics - so we read in today's TIMES! Good stuff!
